At least the first reveal from Xbox Entertainment Studios was a live-action Halo show helmed by Steven Spielberg. The unit's next venture is Every Street United. Each episode in the eight episode series will be shot in a different country (U.S., Spain, Holland, France, Argentina, Brazil, Ghana, South Korea) and focus on the search for local, undiscovered soccer talent during the run up to the 2014 World Cup.

According to Deadline, the finale may involve the top eight discovered players going 4 on 4 at the World Cup, which could be neat. Documentary film maker Jonathan Hock is also involved in the project. He did two episodes in ESPN's very good 30 for 30 series, one of which I've seen ("The Best That Never Was").

So this could actually be good, though I know some of you may want to get upset at the whole "having a division of Xbox that makes not even game-related video content" thing.

Oh, and the show is expected to feature some sort of "interactive component." Maybe voting. It's almost like a videogame!

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.more

Push Me Pull You is 2-vs-2 gross sausage monster ball wrestling

Hamza was won over by Push Me Pull You at GDC and I wish I had gotten a chance to try it, too. At least now there's some disturbing video of it in action.  "Connected at the waist, you and your partner must use a s...more
